A woman can feel the difference between a confident man that knows who he is and one that is just says the words. I was going to say parroting, just didn't want the image of "Polly wants a cracker!" LOL. Well, maybe I did say it on purpose THAT way? :-)
It takes one conversation to tell a genuine gentleman. :-). I am not talking about being a cliche lol. We know that you want a man that acts like a man, as well as listen to you when you want to share, not just try to solve your problems. LOL
I understand that we are responsible for our own happiness! :-). Happiness is a combination of taking action and mind state. They interact well to have a positive experience. I take charge of my life to make that happen. I am autonomous and capable, looking for the right person to share time and adventures with.
My passions are cooking, poker, and enjoying the moment :-). I seek out people who are happy, growth oriented, open minded, and take action.
